Perfect expression of love

June 13th 2011
The seraphim are the angels of the sephirah Kether, the first sephirah on the Tree of Life, the sephirotic Tree. So they are the first to receive the divine emanations. They are immersed in the still seething ocean of primordial matter. They drink at the source of light, at the source of love, which is their only food, and day and night they repeat, ‘Holy, holy, holy, the Lord God the almighty.’ They nourish themselves by contemplating the Lord, which is why they are depicted with eyes all over their body. The seraphim are the perfect expression of love, for true love is a contemplation.
